The Rockets have announced a new alternate jersey, which they will debut on November 6 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

It's a little bit of an homage to their past jerseys, with some modern tweaks. It reportedly took over a year to to finish the design, which was created by Jose Lopez, the Rockets' Creative Services Manager. Lopez had this to say about the new threads:

Everybody still talks about the championship years and you see fans wearing the retro jerseys, so why not bring that back - why not use the ketchup and mustard colors? So that’s what I went with. I started designing the jersey with ‘Houston’ on the front because I know how important it is to represent the city. We wanted to make sure everyone knows just how proud we are to call this city home.

The Rockets website also gave a glimpse at some of the design sketches:

I like that they are bringing the yellow back, that has been missing in their unis over the last several years.

Like the colors, hate the font. Too thin and wispy. Sports fonts should be stronger, more forceful.

This is probably the best looking uni the team's ever had. Then again, anything's better than pinstripes.
